2% difference be dammed

10% more like. 32 <> 35 = 3

Which makes the protests all the more odd considering there are more 1/35 figures you could use.

Fair enough ,  I'm 6ft 2in , and a fair number orf people are 10% smaller than me ,  so mixing and matching 32 and 35 has never seemed too important = just don't tell my  friends over on LSP that

It has more accurate rivet detail on the upper wing than Trumpeter which lacks the circle of rivets where the wheel well is located.

 

If they get the spinner shape right it looks like it will be a winner out of the box.

looks really nice, there are some clear parts there I dont recognize as belonging to a 109 though and I cant tell what they are ment to represent, they kinds look like 20mm gondola parts.

Didn't the 109 seat hold the parachute, so the pilot sat on it?

 

Otherwise I would never have got my lanky frame into the EADS G-6 😀

For the space-challenged, I guess it would make a great 'hanging off the ceiling in a vertical dive' accessory

 

Seriously, for once I'm looking forwards to the rivet counters' assessment of this one.

Are we supposed to buy several kits in the hope of getting the figure we want? 🙂

 

It brings back memories of trying to persuade my mother to keep buying boxes of breakfast cereal just so I could get the plastic toy inside! It was never the exact one I needed..

I understand helicopters , Storch and Cubs, but Bf-109 seems a strange choice. Only time will tell !
